Hi folks,



There used to be a story on the interwebz about a bloke who converted his K75 by fitting the fairing and hardware of a K100RS. Does anyone know if this story can still be found?



I'm not sure how serious I am about this as my brick is still in the process of getting back on the road, but I have a long term dream of maybe fitting a K75 motor. Horsepower doesn't bother me, I have my Daytona for hooning around, I just like the feel of the little triple.

Check out how the K100 RT fairing is adapted to a K75 RT. I think that a similar thing would be required.

The long-time Airhead and K-RS lover in me thinks this conversion is the shit (except for the colour of the trim and the wheels).

Wow, that is stunning TWB, but I'm a long time fan of the looks of the KRS fairing. Cheers for the link

G'day, I raised the handlebars on my K75S by fitting K100RT bars.The clutch cable had to be rerouted and a longer brake line fitted.I got rid of the S fairing because it rattled and it was a pain to carry out an oil change.(bottom/belly fairing had to be removed).I then fitted a K75C cowling over the radiator.All is now good.Cheers,Tom Grabau
